When it comes to picking out a Halloween costume that鈥檚 sure to be a hit, going for something from the 鈥90s is an obvious choice. But the problem is that it鈥檚 also an obvious choice for everybody else. If you want to have a throwback costume that you know no one else is going to be rocking, we vote you skip the Fresh Prince getup and instead opt for one of these clever options.


1. 鈥90s Mary Kate and Ashley: Sure, MK + A are killing it on the fashion front in 2015, but we love their 鈥90s looks just as much. Bring back your favorite set of twins with some shorteralls, blonde wigs and scrunchies. (via Brit + Co)


2. Tamagotchi: Bring back your favorite childhood toy this year for Halloween. Chelsea, the genius creator of this costume, tells Costume Works, 鈥淚 cut the sandwich board out of foam core, painted it with neon acrylic paint, and created the screen out of a thick piece of clear rubber (one of those computer desk covers you can get at Staples) and taped neon green EL wire on the inside so it could light up. My very talented husband drew the pixelated figures with Sharpie and painted the Tamagotchi logo.鈥 (Photo via Costume Works)

3. Spinelli: Sarah Hyland channeled our favorite Recess character way back in 2012, but it鈥檚 still as cool a costume now as it was then. Also, if you鈥檙e looking for something practical for the cooler weather, this costume should definitely be a contender. (Photo via @therealsarahhyland)

4. Alex Mack: Throw on a backward baseball hat and overalls and tie a flannel around your waist. Then all that鈥檚 left to do is transform into a metallic goo puddle 鈥 easy, right? (Photo via @ahstrayah)


5. Corey Mason From Empire Records: If you鈥檙e into the 鈥90s but not quite as into dressing up, this is the perfect in between. And the best part? You can definitely source all of these pieces from Goodwill. (Photo via Adventures in Fashion)


6. Every 鈥90s Trend: Think: a Delia鈥檚 catalog on crack. Throw on a choker necklace, one of those one-size-fits-all t-shirts, butterfly clips, body glitter and some platform sandals and literally spend the night as the 鈥90s. (Photo via Brit + Co)


7. Parent Trap: Unite with your best bud (or twin if you have one) to channel your favorite 鈥90s twins. Major kudos if you accessorize with Oreos and peanut butter. (via Brit + Co)


8. Clarissa Explains It All: This one is pretty easy 鈥 just literally pile on ALL the patterns you can find. (Photo via Universal Studios)

9. Lil鈥 Kim at the VMAS: If you鈥檙e down to show a little (okay, a lot of) skin, why not replicate that legendary Lil鈥 Kim ensemble she rocked at the 1999 VMAs? If Miley can pull it off, you can too. (Photo via Scott Gries/Getty)


10. 鈥90s Snacks: Blow up your favorite 鈥90s snack or cereal to the size of a poster board. Then glue it on some foam board and wear it as a giant necklace. (Photo via Betty Crocker and General Mills)


11. Sister Sister: This one is for all you twins, sisters or friends who look super similar out there. We鈥檙e going to say bucket hats are a must. Props to you if you can also recruit your very own Roger. (Photo via ABC)


12. Johnny Depp and Kate Moss: If you and your boo are ready to channel some lethal levels of 鈥90s grunge, go as this iconic couple. Make sure your Johnny is rocking some combat boots, ripped jeans, a flannel and a beanie. Kate should be sporting something simple like a shift dress and strappy heels. But the key ingredient to totally killing this couple鈥檚 costume is definitely a heavy dose of angst. (via Tumblr)


13. Cory and Topanga: I mean, is there really a cuter 鈥90s TV couple than these two? Doing this costume right is definitely about nailing the clothing, but it鈥檚 even more important to get the hair right. Pop on a dark, curly wig for Cory and the highest of high ponytails for Topanga.

14. Kimmy Gibbler: Forget the rest of the Full House crew; Kimmy definitely had the best outfits out of the bunch. If you do feel inclined to dress up as the Tanner family鈥檚 favorite neighbor, be sure to check Andrea Barber鈥檚 Twitter, because she usually hosts a Kimmy Gibbler costume contest!

15. A Celeb Who Just Got Slimed: Because what鈥檚 more 鈥90s than getting covered in a bunch of green goop? Grab some thrift store duds and mimic the slimy stuff with as much green paint as you can find. (Photo via Frank Micelotta/Getty)
